Follow us on instagram @galenacabinrentals www.galenacabinrentals.com

Set on a beautiful seven acres of wooded hillside, Homestead Hideaway offers you a unique opportunity to rest and relax within a peaceful setting. Located just 15 Miles from Galena, Illinois, our cabins in the woods can be your home away from home while you enjoy Galena, Chestnut Mountain, hiking, wineries, and all the other amenities Jo Daviess County has to offer.

When you stay at Homestead Hideaway, you can simply relax in our cozy rustic cabins, or get out and enjoy everything the area has to offer. At Homestead Hideaway you can expect a tranquil feel and a stress free retreat. The cabins are located in a beautiful rural area where it is perfect to have a cup of coffee or tea in the mornings and enjoy the wildlife. Let our cabins be a rare chance to unplug from the world and help ensure you have a relaxed and secluded stay. We are not able to provide Internet or cable TV due to the location of the cabins. However, do not let that steer you away from the beautiful setting. There are numerous locations in Galena as well as E-Town Coffee in Elizabeth, IL with Internet access.

We have two historic cottages located on the property and three separate rentals. The cabins are located on opposite ends of the property. You can enjoy the seven acres of wooded area by hiking or taking your dog for a walk. Whether you are planning a romantic trip to Galena, a golfing trip, a couple’s getaway, a wine lovers weekend, or skiing at Chestnut Mountain during the winter months, Homestead Hideaway will accommodate to your needs.

We have been renting the cabins for about 2 years now. We have decided to go beyond the brochure advertising and word of mouth and work with VRBO for our rentals. Do not hesitate to ask any questions.

This rental is for the Brimeyer cabin. It has 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. One bedroom is located on the top level with a King bed. The second bedroom is on the bottom level with a queen bed. The main level has a kitchen and a living/dining area. There is also a sofa sleeper in the living/dining area.

The other cabin on the property also has two rentals on this website. The top two levels of the other cabin is the Seven Sisters Suite vrbo # 623038. The lower level/unit of the cabin is our Gleneagle Suite which is also listed on VRBO #624157

We now have a landline at the cabin. It is for local and emergency(911) calling only. If you wish to call long distance you will need to bring a calling card. However, long distance inbound calling is free.

Great Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our children gave us a weekend at this wonderful cabin. They picked it out and it was perfect. Dena was very helpful giving them information and ideas. When we arrived at night, we were not exactly sure where we were. It is very secluded. The next day we were able to explore the property and area and we saw were not far from anything. The cabin was very clean and had everything we needed. Loved walking the property with our dog. Nice to have the mowed trails to follow. Beautiful drive into Galena and downtown Elizabeth. Went to wineries, shopping, hiking at the state park, and just driving the country roads enjoying the scenery. Was nice to come home from a busy day to the peace and quiet of the cabin. Will definitely come back and stay here again. Thank you for the use of your lovely cabin.

Great for a weekend getaway

  • 4 of 5

A group of six of us went to stay in the cabin for a weekend and had a great time. Perfect for dogs to get a great run around, but cabin was on the tight side for 6 adults.

A Fun and Relaxing Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The Brimeyer cabin was the perfect gathering place for a girls getaway weekend. Our group of five has been friends for 15+ years and now that we all live in different cities, we try to plan a reunion every summer. This year we chose Galena as our meeting spot so we began looking for nearby accommodations. I’m so happy we found Homestead Hideaway in Elizabeth! The property is beautiful and the cabin is lovely - rustic and comfortable with modern amenities. The kitchen is stocked with the basics - cooking utensils, a few pots and pans, flatware, etc. The grill and fire pit outside are nice additions. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay and would recommend the cabin to anyone looking for a relaxing and peaceful getaway. (Side note: Dena was a lovely host and very communicative.)

A Gem In The Country

  • 4 of 5

If you need to get "off the grid", this log cabin in the countryside surrounding Galena is the perfect place to go. The only sounds we heard were the birds and the occasional moo of cows from a distant farm. The countryside is beautiful leading up to the property and you are literally at the end of a dirt road so it is completely private. The property is central to a number of local wineries that are all within about a 12 mile radius. I know because I hit all of them. Downtown Galena is a pleasant drive away.

The cabin itself is charming and very comfortable with two full bathrooms. Both tubs have showers included, but the tubs themselves are claw foot tubs so it could be challenging for some to get in and out. There is no mobile phone signal or wifi so you definitely need to be in the mindset to unplug. However, once you do, this is a little slice of heaven. I definitely see myself coming back here.
